Still waiting for this thing to be gone. Right now one of the links goes to an article from 2009. And this is useful how?

No, there are no ads but I can't imagine how this is useful to anyone. But even if it is, the problem with it is that it loads while we are reading or trying to reply so the page leaps around.

I'm not so annoyed with just seeing the gurus as I am with the pages being all jacked. Fix pwease. I'll make cookies.

Big chop: 5/30/10
CG, clarify with Aveda Brilliant Shampoo when needed
Dense, medium-fine strands, lowish porosity. Avoiding glycerin outside the shower.
Cowash:Suave Coconut Conditioner.
Leave in: YtCucumbers and EVOO
Styling Products: Flaxseed gel, Phillip B Soft Hold Gel, KMF Upper Management Gel

The CurlyGurus postings look like spam to me. At first, I was just waiting for it to be banned but then I figured it was some sort of tricky advertising.

They annoy me to no end and I would never ever click on the links.

Please make them stop.

and now we have "Trending Topics" at the bottom of screens...

*sigh*

if i want to read the news, i go to a news site - i DO NOT want it pushed at me here!!! and the "topics" offered...

*sheesh*

as much as i LOVE having links to my old columns show up in the "gurus" thing, it annoys the heck out of me and these "topics" are insulting my intelligence!

But this is the only site with this problem, and it's unprofessional enough that I wouldn't even consider buying products through the site because I wouldn't trust its security.

I'm positive I'm not the only one who feels that way. I don't try to find/read articles or anything else for the same reason.

I regularly disappear and know many others do as well because of the combination of site which runs horribly due to ads and inconsistent moderation. (Apparently posts are being poofed without indication again... it made me go away before, and is about to do the same again. Particularly when coupled with the "don't talk about moderation" reign of terror from unnammed Number Mod.)

It just seems worse every day. Now I can't "like" things most of the time (I get an error message) and at least once a day NC totally freezes up my laptop and I have to restart. It's getting quite irritating.

Why must expanding and getting more money (a good thing) be synonymous with forgetting those who brought you there? I do not understand.

Yikes you guys! lol

just letting you know that I see this thread and I've called a meeting TODAY to discuss all of this. What I'm supposed to do as Community Manager is communicate all this info to the appropriate people, as I am not on the ad team, the tech team, etc. I do not know what is possible, and what is not at this point. I will keep you all posted, probably via an Announcement on CT just because there are many of these convos going on and I want to kind of reign all this feedback into one, neat place.

As far as Curly Gurus, I know you can click "hide" and you will not see them again. But I am suggesting that the gurus gotta go altogether.

Thanks for your feedback! There are thousands of CurlTalkers and conversations going on and 3 admins/moderators. Organized communication takes some time, but never hesitate to directly message me. Several people have done that already, just to alert me that a thread is poppin' lol

Thank you for your patience and please don't go!
